Abstracts can now be submitted online for the 13th Annual Cambio de Colores Conference.
Abstract Submission: through Feb 24, 2014
Cambio de Colores serves as a unique venue to share, learn, discuss, and identify critical areas where the development of information and promising practices will facilitate the successful transition of newcomers into communities large and small. This year’s theme, “Growing Together in New Destination Areas,” is meant to encourage the discussion of research and best practices that can be used by communities to assist integration efforts in areas with a recent intake of immigrants. The conference organizers seek research and best practices presentations, posters, and panels on the conference themes: 1. Change and Integration; 2. Civil Rights and Political Participation; 3. Education; 4. Health; 5. Entrepreneurship and Economic Development (follow this link to the Call for Abstracts). The conference is also a venue for workshops targeted to community members, leaders, and public officials to provide the tools necessary to address these changes in ways that are sustainable and beneficial to all.
Submissions due February 24, 2014.
